Anchor Bay decided to round out the week with the first poster for the David Jung-directed haunter THE POSSESSION OF MICHAEL KING, and it’s quite the skin crawler. The highly-anticipated, terrifying supernatural horror film marks Jung’s feature film debut and is set for theaters on August 22nd and available On iTunes, On Demand, DVD, and Blu-ray on August 26th. Take a peek below to catch a glimpse at the film's first one-sheet!
Here’s a synopsis:
The film tells the story of documentary filmmaker Michael King (Shane Johnson), who doesn’t believe in God or the Devil. Following the sudden death of his wife, Michael decides to make his next film about the search for the existence of the supernatural, making himself the center of the experiment – allowing demonologists, necromancers, and various practitioners of the occult to try the deepest and darkest spells and rituals they can find on him – in the hopes that when they fail, he’ll once and for all have proof that religion, spiritualism, and the paranormal are nothing more than myth. But something does happen. An evil and horrifying force has taken over Michael King. And it will not let him go.
THE POSSESSION OF MICHAEL KING is an intense supernatural spine-tingler from the producers of WHITE NOISE and THE HAUNTING IN CONNECTICUT, directed by first-time director David Jung and starring Shane Johnson (Starz’ upcoming “Power”), Dale Dickey (Iron Man 3), Julie McNiven (TV’s “Supernatural”, “Mad Men”), and Tomas Arana (Guardians of the Galaxy). The film is written by David Jung from a story by Jung and Tedi Sarafian (Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines).
